candidate. nominate the right candidates. >> ken cuccinelli may be able to -- i don't know, anna, did you see that? >> yeah. i've seen polls all over the place. i'm sure that the government shutdown issue hurt cuccinelli. i'm also sure what's happening with obama care is at some point hurting mcauliffe as well. so yes, i have seen polls as tight as seven points, five points. and others that have it as broad as 12 points and so, we're yet to see, look, you never know until election day and until you figure out what voters came out. if the democrat voters get overconfident, it could be very bad for them. >> go ahead, lz. >> i was going to say, it is important to note that virginia is a very special case. there is a very volatile civil war happening within the gop in that particular state. ken cuccinelli kind of did some shady stuff. they didn't didn't have a primary there, they add convention. the tea party and conservative christians took the tea party instead of a natural democratic process. what you mentioned before, anna, they are purple. in the primary process, it doesn't matter which
, for instance, the campaign manager of fran cuccinelli, when they were talking about the shutdown, they were having a hard time, and now they're talking about obama care and his campaign is doing better ask bettnd better. the shutdown was not the right way, in my view, but with obama care, i would have taken the senate and the white house and replace it with something that's going to do a better job for the american people and let them keep the insurance they were promised they could keep in the first place. >> you mentioned ken cuccinelli running for governor in virginia. the new book is called "double down game change 2012." a lot of political entry. one aspect, governor, when you had a family owned plan, you actually voted against it. you questioned whether you should stay in the race and whether you could ultimately win. there is an argument that comes through in the book with some republicans that with the stakes so high in the 2012 election, did you not show enough fight? did you not want to win it enough? how do you rebut that charge? >> there is no question but that i wanted to win i
